Wainui OC1 Canoe

Maui Kjeldsen designed the WAINUI to serve as an all-around canoe for the average sized paddler, to be fast on flat water while excelling in sizable ocean conditions.

The Wainui glides in flat water and excels in rough, sloppy conditions as well.
Seat and ama configuration create a canoe that gives the paddler amazing control.

15" wide
Sit in style seat for extra control
Ama rides closer to the pivot point of the canoe in comparison to other OC-1 models for extra performance in rough water
Very efficient footwell drains
Double bungee storage in the front and back
Bungee and paddle clip on back deck to carry a spare paddle
Hull weight: varies depending on lay-up material, starting @ 20-23 pounds
Available lay-ups: (1) Standard - Carbon/Glass, Vacuum epoxy;

Live life

As we grow up, we learn that even the one person that wasn't supposed to ever let you down probably will.

You'll have your heart broken propably more than once and its harder everytime. You'll break hearts too, so remember how it felt when yours was broken.

You'll fight with your best friend. You'll blame a new love for things an old one did.

You'll cry because time is passing too fast, & you'll eventually lose someone you love so take too many pictures, laugh to much, & love like you've never been hurt because every sixty seconds you spend upset is a minute of happiness you'll never get back.

Don't be afraid that your life will end be afraid that it will never begin.
